To the Colp Family…we are so sorry for the loss of your father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend…cherish the memories and keep them close to your heart and they will bring you comfort in the days ahead…
You can shed tears that he is gone,
Or you can smile because he lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all he has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him
Or you can be full of the Love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday.
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him only that he is gone
Or you can cherish him memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what he’d want…
SMILE, OPEN YOUR EYES, LOVE AND GO ON!!!
Thinking of you all….
Sincerely, Willis & Corina
To The Colp Family

Stephen ,Stacey ,Mary ,Brenda ,Paula ,May ,Wendy ,Robert and families we was very sad to hear about your dads passing ..He was such a wonderful friend and neighbour always had a smile for me whenever I seen him I would stand at my door many days and watch him on the hill with Stephen doing his wood or breaking up his rocks he was always doing something even though we moved he still was in our thoughts wondering how he was doing we loved him very much ..always cherish your memories with him we are thinking of u all at this sad time .He is up there now flying with the Angles and pain free .(((((hugs))))) to u all Xoxoxo ❤️. The sadness of the present days
is locked and set in time,
and moving to the future
is a slow and painful climb.
But all the feelings that are now
so vivid and so real
can’t hold their fresh intensity
as time begins to heal.
No wound so deep will ever go
yet every hurt becomes
a little less from day to day.
Nothing can erase the painful
imprints on your mind
but there are softer memories
that time will let you find.
Though your heart won’t let the sadness
simply slide away
the echoes will diminish
even though the memories stay

To Frank’s family –
We were very saddened to hear of your loss.
Though we barely knew Frank, we thought of him as a father who raised his children to have a strong sense of pride; a hard-working ethic and a responsible,independent nature.
And Steven, we’re forever grateful that by selling us your land, our cottage is so proudly situated.
Please accept our deepest sympathy at this difficult time.
TO The CLOP family sorry to hear of the passing of your dad but Frank live his life to the fullest doing what he like best r.i.p.Frankmy thoughts and prayers go out to his family

So sorry to hear of Frank’s sudden passing. My condolences to the family at this sad time.
To the entire Colp children, grandchildren and great grandchildren: My deepest sympathy on the loss of Frank. I didn’t know him as well as I did Audrey, but I know that he and my father (Crosby “Bud” McLeod) were friends from way back. In fact, we have photographs of them together with Arch Broome who I think was considerably older. I guess you can consider yourselves fortunate that you had him with you for this long time, and I hope your memories will bring you much happiness and joy in the future. Please know that I am thinking of you all at this difficult time though. His passing is the loss of another member of the old Port Mouton that I knew and loved when I was a child.
Sincerely, Emily (McLeod)
